Decanted 2 hours. Leather color w/pungent nose. Fair legs was a bit disappointed since the wine is from Medoc. Heavy plum, tar, leather. Good structure w/good tannins. Held well in the mouth with good backbone. Went well w/leg of lamb
This was quite nice and really a fantastic value for Bordeaux with a bit of age; I gave this about 2 hours of air, and the bouquet gave way to pleasant aromas of bright red fruits, leather and mint; The palate had plenty of red and dark fruit - indicative of the vintage - but remained in balance with slightly chewy tannins on the finish
DnP. Garnet colour. Lovely mature ripe wine. Softened but still has nerve, red fruits, pencil i.e.the classic Medoc virtues. Fine juicy finish. Kept fresh all evening - opened up even more. Drink now-2018. Clearly better than the 2000 enjoyed yesterday.
